Today's Truck Monday with a 1978 Dodge Power Wagon pickup.AdvertisementIt's Truck Monday again, and today that means we'll be checking out a fine stack-equipped example of the Keep On Truckin' Era (aka Malaise Era): a 1978 Dodge Power Wagon pickup. In 1978, you could boogie down to your friendly Dodge dealer and roar off the lot in a tape-stripe-a-ganza of a special-edition D series pickup. Everyone knows about the Lil' Red Express, which boasted the highest top speed of any Big Three-built vehicle- including the Corvette- during the darkest days of Malaise, but don't forget the Midnite Express, the Warlock, or the Macho Power Wagon! This truck appears to be a sort of junkyard mashup of a regular D series with the Lil' Red Express and the Macho Power Wagon (though it's not quite as macho as this '70). Or were the exhaust stacks a factory option available on any D series truck? Dodge truck experts, any insights?
